Acknowledgement of Country

COORDINARE – South Eastern NSW PHN acknowledges the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the lands across which we live and work. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ continuing connection both physical and spiritual to land, sea and sky. 


A note about language 

Language carries history and creates meaning. At COORDINARE, the term ‘Aboriginal’ is generally used in preference to ‘Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander,’ in recognition that Aboriginal peoples are the original inhabitants of South Eastern NSW.

Welcome to COORDINARE's 2022-23 Annual Review

As Chair of the Board, I am proud to present COORDINARE’s 2022-23 Annual Review. This review highlights the work that has been undertaken during the past year to fulfill our commitments as outlined in our current strategic plan. It also provides an opportunity for us to reflect on our achievements as we aim to meet the many health challenges across our region.

We are focussed on our vision of a coordinated regional health system, partnering with government, non-profit, health care providers, service partners and communities to coordinate local health services and to ensure that we are supporting those most at risk of poor health outcomes.

COORDINARE has a strong, focussed, and professional Board with a wide range of skills and perspectives.  All board members are fully committed to ensuring that COORDINARE is leading the way in primary health care delivery to our communities.  It is a pleasure to be working alongside this Board, together with our new CEO, Prudence Buist and the Executive team in this important work.

I am sure you will enjoy hearing more on our key achievements in the introductory video below:
